Mascot Helps Humanity Understand Climate Change!

4HughManatee LLC Creates an Icon So Humanity Gets the Message

"Hugh" is a manatee. Say it together and it sounds like " humanity." Why did I create the mascot? Because humanity is at risk due to climate change. This is a high stakes game for all beings on planet Earth. This mascot can be a centerpiece of a climate change educational effort. A manatee is a mammal that lives in the coastal waters off of Florida. 

Carbon particles, measured in parts per million (ppm) in the atmosphere should not exceed 350 ppm, but on  June 12, 2024, it was 427.59 ppm, causing record-breaking weather and environmental consequences around the globe. Ten years ago it was 402.09 ppm. We are going in the wrong direction.

Smokey Bear is passé, whose slogan changed to, "Only you can prevent wildfires."  It used to be, "Only you can prevent forest fires." The horrible fires are often attributed to climate change.  No enforceable changes came from the UNFCCC COP 28 which met in Dubai,  United Arb Emirates, an oil-producing nation. Since Kyoto and the Paris Accord and like all the COP meetings since, this meeting did not yield progress to stop the trajectory of the sixth extinction. The United States, one of the largest polluters, is not doing enough to facilitate getting off fossil fuels.

Hugh Manatee is endorsed by Noam Chomsky, PhD, Linguist and Political Activist. I have also received a thumb's up from three climate scientists —Walt Meier, PhD,  Peter Kalmus, and Michael E. Mann, PhD. Even 97-year-old David Attenborough wrote to me about this mascot idea.

Innumerable deaths and property destruction spell the fate of the planet. Storms, unlivable heat, and drought all across North America and the world put every living thing at risk. The Hugh Manatee mascot can bring more understanding about climate change.  Is there an environmental group who  will promote Hugh Manatee  as a campaign for their activism? Either I receive funding from an angel investor to support this idea so I can sell biodegradable products to raise money from my website online gift shop to have profits got toward purchasing books and materials for school libraries about climate change, or I would entertain selling the website and the mascot (make me an offer). If interested write to me at adrienne@4hughmanatee.com..  I will even consider lending the vector art FOR FREE to any legitimate company or group of activists to utilize. I'd love to see this mascot go international. 

Click the Atmospheric CO2 link below or type this URL in to visit https://www.co2.earth/daily-co2 website to learn how the burning of fossil fuels contributes to the atmospheric CO2 rising, ocean water temperatures rising, polar ice caps and glaciers melting, and causing more severe weather events. I don't have the money to do this myself and am seeking help. Who will pick up this mascot to encourage countries to make earth-friendly choices?

Here's what you can do:  Buy green products, divest your finances from stocks that have ties to the fossil fuel industry and invest in wind, solar, geothermal and water energy companies. Recycle (see Terracycle.com) and promote earth-friendly lifestyles. Demand that your elected officials stop taking campaign contributions from firms that make a mess of our planet with their policies.
